In a ten-minute span this morning, my son caught a frog on a hike, I found out I was the first-place winner in the One Book, One Chicago flash fiction contest, and I found out my mother-in-law will be living with us for a few weeks.

The lineup for the event on Thursday, October 13 is as follows:

6:30pm – reception begins, doors/bar opens at Stop Smiling(1371 N. Milwaukee)
7:00 – Annie Tully brief welcome, introduces readers from contest.

8:15 – panel discussion with four above writers

I’m as excited as if I caught my own frog.
